Anime / Manga drawing exercise

This week I thought I would try drawing a few anime/manga drawings.  I’m not exactly sure what the difference is between the two styles but I did enjoy drawing each picture.  I like the simple drawing style of both and the uniqueness of the eyes.

Keep drawing!

The Eyes have it

So one of the things I struggle with is drawing eyes.  I decided to make that my drawing this week and I feel pretty good about how the eye turned out.  What are some of the things you struggle with in your art? Any suggestions about how I could make this eye better? 🙂

Thanks,

Batman speaks out about government shutdown. LAME!

Newsflash!  U.S. government is shut down!  AGAIN!  Ridiculous.

I was watching the news last week and of course more news about the government shutdown, yawn.  It got me thinking, what would Batman say about the shutdown?

LAME!

2019 Drawing Challenge – draw something every day…

Okay.  Let me first begin by saying drawing something everyday is much more difficult than I had anticipated.  Maybe some of you saw this coming…but this does not mean that I am not going to continue with my challenge it simply means I will need to adjust the scope of my frequency of drawing.  Also I do not want to become that annoying blogger person that sacrifices quality for quantity.

My 2019 drawing challenge – draw something everyday is going to become draw something everyday but complete the drawing weekly instead of daily.  🙂

As Sponge Bob would say

“We don’t need television not as long as we have our imagination”.

Keep drawing!

Joker

2019 drawing challenge to draw something everyday – here is my Joker.

I was following along with Jim Lee and if you have ever watched him he draws very fast.  My goal is to become a better artist by seeing the way the very skilled artist sees when drawing.

Clearly, there are some mistakes but drawing loose and quickly you have very little time to over-correct, which I think is very useful for learning the skill.

Doodling Obsession

My recent doodling obsession has gone from my drawing pad to a t-shirt.  I began one day while I was watching the Breaking Bad series, doodling faces.

1-faces10

Once I had filled this sheet I decided to do another and began drawing boxes, in color.

1-squareheads 50

the boxes became frogs…

1-frogs 001

the frogs hopped on a T-shirt once again as faces.  Go figure.

Not certain where my doodling obsession will lead next…

Enjoy!
